Current version number of Sirius product
Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. There is no OO equivalent for the $SirVer function, but you can get the same information from the SIRIUS command.
This function returns the current version number of a particular Sirius product.
%ver = $SirVer([product])
|%ver||A numeric variable that is set to the current version number of the requested product.|
|product||A string corresponding to one of the following products:|
- This function can be used to ensure that you are running the correct version of the Sirius Mods or of Fast/Unload. For example, the following program
would stop if the Sirius Mods were older than release 6.03:
IF $SirVer < 603 THEN PRINT 'OBSOLETE SIRIUS FUNCTIONS' STOP END IF
- The default product value is SIRMODS; that is, if the argument is missing or is the null string, the version number of the Sirius Mods is returned. If the argument is invalid, 0 is returned. If the argument is FUNLOAD, and the Fast/Unload SOUL Interface is not available, 0 is returned.
